Research at the Institute of Technical Chemistry is mainly related to technical polymer chemistry with a special focus on sustainability aspects. Important topics are detailed modeling of polymerization processes to identify and optimize conditions giving access to tailor-made polymers, preparation of polymer electrolyte membranes being essential for energy storage or fuel cell applications, and the use of supercritical CO2 as a reaction and process medium. In addition, we are interested in synthesis under technically relevant conditions, characterization, and applications of fluoropolymers.
